ENCANTO POTASH CORP. PROVIDES RESOURCE UPDATE

TRADING SYMBOL: TSXV  EPO.V

VANCOUVER, March 7 /CNW/ - Encanto Potash Corp. ("Encanto" or the "Company") announces that it has modified the scope of work given to North Rim Exploration to include resource calculations based on conventional mining methods and also the In-situ Leach (ISL) mining method. The Company feels this additional calculation is necessary in order to evaluate which method will provide the optimal economic benefit to the anticipated resource. The Company expects the concurrent resource calculations to be finalized in early April.

Jim Walchuck, Encanto's CEO, commented, "Potash resource calculations are unique in that different mining methods have a profound impact on the resource tonnage calculation and as such must be taken into account in the analysis. We feel that this is a necessary step in order to ensure we move forward in the most economical manner in the future."
